Cauliflower Fried Rice

Do you need a substitute for regular fried rice? I love fried rice. Pre trim healthy mama, I never got plain white rice when I went to Chinese restaurants. I know that there are people all over the world that love a nice bowl of plain white rice. There are also people who love a glass of plain cow’s milk. Again, I can’t do it. Give me all the flavors, the sesame seed oil, soy sauce, veggies, seasoning, yes please. If that is you, then give this low carb version of the original a try.

Serve if with your favorite Asian inspired main dish. Most recently I served it with my dump and go teriyaki chicken thighs. They paired together perfectly. I haven’t tried freezing this side yet, but it is on my list of things to try. I love having a freezer with on plan foods, like the chicken that went with this dish.
